THQ have announced that they are to sell their remaining intellectual properties this April, following their initial asset stripping in January this year.
The remaining properties include high profile lines including Darksiders, Red Faction, De Blob, and the MX titles, alongside titles which haven’t been used in recent years such as Destroy All Humans, Full Spectrum Warrior, and Summoner.
THQ also hold a number of licenses such as Supreme Commander, Marvel Super Heroes and Worms which will be included in the auction.
Bidding begins on the 1st of April, with final bids required by the 15th.
Platinum Studio have previously expressed an interest in the Darksiders IP, which could be a perfect fit, and it will be interesting to see who purchases some of the others. A next generation Full Spectrum Warrior or Red Faction would already have a fan-base built in, and at the right price that could be extremely tempting.
